One of my favorite Glee episodes last season was about . . . hair:
Not surprising that I liked this episode. I've been a bit, ummmm, fixated on my own hair for a couple of years ago. Losing it. Growing it back. Dealing with new curls. Embracing the grey. Figuring out what to do with it.
Yeah. About that one. Figuring out what to do with it. So far, I've just been letting it grow. Getting it styled and cut periodically, to keep it in some semblance of a "hairdo" . . . but mostly, just letting it grow until I figure out what I want to do with it.
I've moved through so many "stages" of chemo hair re-growth. Starting with the Mother Theresa look.
Moving on the Jamie Lee Curtis look.
Through those awkward "where's the beef" months.
And the getting-longer "Mozart hair" phase.
I finally settled in for a long time with the Paula Deen look. But just to let my hair grow some.
Now, though, I think my hair has grown long enough to do what I WANT to do with it. To go for a style of my own choosing! After two years, I'm finally ready to walk into my hair salon and say, "I want THIS hair cut."
Yep. This time, I'm going for Helen Mirren!
